Birds Watching at Lake Bunyoni

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After Rwanda our next stop on the tour was Lake Bunyonyi in Uganda.

Lake Bunyonyi is known for it’s abundance of bird life. Over three hundred species apparently. Our first morning there we went for a bird watching walk first thing in the morning. I was tired and kept staring at the birds but forgetting to take pictures.

Then when I would try to get a picture often the bird would move, birds can be incredibly frustrating to photograph. STOP MOVING!!!!

As soon as you put your camera down the little sucker will fly down and pose perfectly on a branch right in front of you, every time. I swear.

I did manage to get some good pictures and still have some pictures that I’m playing “Where’s Waldo?” with. I know I took the picture for a reason, I know there is probably a bird somewhere in the frame but I can’t find it…….

Here are ones with the birds easy to spot, as the trip went on I got better with my camera. Landscape, no problem. People, no problem. Birds and animals that won’t stop moving around to give me time to figure out how to focus, that took a little more practice.
